Roll up your selves and enjoy this Southern Backyard recipe. It’s a classic way to prepare fresh shrimp and if I may say myself pretty easy to!


5 lbs. wild caught domestic shrimp (in shell)
1 can of beer (optional)
2 tbsp. liquid shrimp or crab boil
Juice of one lemon
2 tbsp. ground red pepper (cayenne)
1 small onion
1 tbsp. garlic powder
5 tbsp. salt

Bring all seasoning, except salt to hard boil in enough water to cover shrimp in shell. Drop in shrimp. When shrimp come to a hard boil, add salt, stir well. Hard boil one minute. Turn off heat, cover pot and let stand 8 minutes. Drain shrimp. Serve hot or cold.
